Police in the BC Interior had to make a stressful call on Sunday when dealing with two dangerous animals.
According to RCMP, at 1:21 am, officers responded to the 4000 block of Chuckwagon Trail in Forest Grove after hearing reports of dangerous dogs attacking livestock and charging at a homeowner. The dogs were described as brown and tan American Staffordshire Terrier pit bulls that weighed over 100 pounds.
"The complainant had called police after hearing his chickens being attacked and had gone to investigate, at which point he had been charged by the two dogs who were actively killing birds in their coup," said Cpl. Madonna Saunderson.
The homeowner ended up being trapped by the animals as they continued to try and attack. There were also children at the residence, though they were not hurt during the incident.
Upon arrival, officers remained on "over-watch" as an attempt to locate the owner to control the dogs was made. Unfortunately, no owner was found.
Police continued to observe the dogs acting aggressively, seeking out livestock and making attempts to get into the barn. This resulted in the two being destroyed by police.
Both animals were examined in another attempt to locate the owner, but the results have been negative.
Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact 100 Mile House RCMP at (250)395-2456.
